Essendon Keilor College – Update March 22: CORONAVIRUS

By | News

Many of us have been following media reports today concerned about what the next few weeks will hold for our families, our schools, our workplaces and our homes.  It is important to continue to follow the advice given by the Australian and Victorian governments. This includes bringing forward school holidays to commence on Tuesday 24th  March. The decision on whether to re-open schools after the Term 1 holidays on Wednesday 15th April, will be determined following advice from the Chief Health Officer.  If school closures continue after the Term 1 holidays teachers will be providing online learning.

Parent Teacher Conferences – Cancelled – Normal school day Monday 16th March

Parent Teacher Conferences – Cancelled – Normal school day Monday 16th March

To the EKC school community.
I have decided that parent teacher interviews on Monday will not go ahead as planned. With the new advice that is coming through about gatherings of large numbers of people I think it is sensible to be conservative and do everything I can to protect the health of all of us.
Classes will run as normal on Monday and students should attend as usual.
At this stage there is no information about possible school closures. If the government decides to close schools I will inform the College community immediately.
I apologise for any inconvenience, but the health and well being of staff, students and parents is my top priority.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any concerns.
